Default Bad games performance in KDE

Don't really know if this is a KDE issue, but games perform about 40% slow when I run them from KDE 4.2.3 with effects enabled. The desktop itself, since the fixed drivers performs quite well.

I'm using a GeForce 8600 GTS, on a Athlon 64 X2 4400+, on Arch64, nvidia drivers 180.51.

It is one.

Disable the effects for playing, there is even a keyboard shortcut for that ...

Do you get the hit even when playing fullscreen?
